Today on Kresta - August 26, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Aug. 26

4:00 – 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
On this 100th anniversary of the birth of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, we tale an out-of-the-box look at four of the greatest women of the Church, and what their example can mean for you. Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, and Mother Teresa. Who wouldn’t want these women as friends and guides? Lively, determined, devout but never passive, they were all straight-shooters with an abundance of common sense. They were also deeply in love with God, clinging to him with a tenacity that freed them to do the impossible. We look at the 4 Teresas with Gina Loehr.

4:20 – The Book of Revelation
No other New Testament book matches Revelation for its symbolism and richness of imagery. And yet perhaps no other New Testament book has fostered so much confusion, fascination, and artistic expression. Until now, reading Revelation and meditating on its message has been daunting and mystifying. This need not be the case. It is God's hope-filled message in the face of fear and uncertainty. It is a beautiful book essential to Christian worship and theology. Fr. Bertrand Buby is here to unlock the mystery of Revelation.

5:00 – Pope Will Visit UK in 3 Weeks / Beatify John Henry Cardinal Newman
Pope Benedict XVI will visit England and Scotland from September 16-19, the highlight of which will be the beatification of John Henry Cardinal Newman. It will be the first state visit to the United Kingdom by a pontiff, the Foreign Office said, noting that Pope John Paul II's 1982 trip was officially a pastoral visit, while Benedict's is a "papal visit." With us do discuss this trip is Fr. C. John McCloskey, a noted Newman expert. We look at the significance of the trip, Newman’s life and impact, and the Holy Father’s affinity for Newman.
